Thousands of Dutch Catholics look to leave the church after Pope’s anti-gay comments

Tom Roes, who operates a website containing the documents required for members of the Catholic church to “deregister” themselves, said the number of visitors to the site went from around 10 a day to over 10,000, reported the Irish Times.

“Of course it’s not possible to be ‘de-baptised’ because a baptism is an event, but this way people can unsubscribe or deregister themselves as Catholics,” Mr Roes said.

Just goes to show you how off base the church is. And these are just the people who've actively sought to remove membership. Never mind those who just stopped supporting the church.
